Thu, Aug 1 5:40pm · Clothing after bladder surgery in Kidney & Bladder

I will be home with a catheter for two weeks after surgery. I plan to call the doctors office and ask questions. I just thought someone here would have some insight for me and it would save me a call. Thank you!

I will be having surgery on my bladder in a couple of weeks and will be coming home with a catheter for two weeks. I am female. What type of clothing will I need while wearing this catheter? Does anyone have any advice? What did you do to make this a more positive experience?

Thu, Jul 18 6:59pm · Extra beat in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Yes, I have Afib and an extra beat or beats as well. They tell me it's nothing to be concerned about. Tests they have run all come out good. I have an apple watch and it does show up on there if I do an ECG on the watch.

Thu, Jul 18 11:05am · Blood thinners for A-fib in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I am having the same issue. I take Xarelto daily. I have blood in my urine every couple of months, hematuria. I was referred to a urologist and found I had blood coming from an abnormal cell area inside the bladder. I have had the spot biopsied and no cancer, but they will remove the bad area of my bladder. I too just thought too much Xarelto and go off a few days and start back up, but that wasn't what my case was. I'm glad they found the source and are taking care of the problem.

I had TKR 11 years ago and I find the being very active gives me some discomfort short term. After retirement I started exercising at the gym using machines. I believe that exercising moderately is key to controlling pain after TKR. Currently I have started the process for a 2nd TKR (left this time), but want to get as much mileage out of this knee as I can. I cannot imagine being as active without TKR and would do it over in a heartbeat! I might add that I currently do not take any pain medications.

Tue, Jul 9 7:40pm · A-fib and exercise in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I was diagnosed with Afib over 10 years ago. I fell on ice and dislocated my finger, so went to doctor for finger and was admitted for Afib. I never know when I am in Afib, so purchased an apple watch to track heart rate and record a ECG. I have not had any Afib for several months. I eat a healthy, exercise with a trainer twice a week, do not drink alcohol and limit coffee to 1 cup daily. I am 67 and feeling very good!

A safety feature of an apple watch is if you fall and do not move for 1 minute, it will notify your contacts of a possible emergency.
